Functional yet attractive storage can be an issue for people living in open, loft-style spaces. We've seen examples of residents building "living cubes" or cool, expandable walk-in closets; Tom Villa of Superorganism has come up with the Tuberoom, a freestanding walk-in closet that hinges open to reveal a multitude of storage options.
Characterized as a "reconfigurable private retreat," Tuberoom's translucent walls mean that it's bright inside, and thus can also be used as an office space or even as a private lounge, for example.
Built out of structural plywood framing modules and corrugated vinyl (which can be changed to suit the user's tastes), Tuberoom is meant to be portable, lightweight and adaptable to both the space it's situated in and to the user's needs, unlike built-in solutions that aren't as flexible.
This is a neat, cylindrical solution that thinks out of the box; more over at Superorganism.
